Special Prosecutor Says Fulton Police Officer Justified In Fatal Shooting

A special prosecutor says a Fulton Police Officer was justified in a fatal shooting on December 30th, 2019.

Stephen Sokoloff submitted a report based on his review of the case where an officer fatally shot 25 year old Cody McCaulou outside of McIntire Elementary School.

The report was made public yesterday (Monday) and says evidence shows McCaulou accelerated toward the officer, who was walking toward the vehicle.

The report goes onto the officer had a reasonable belief that he was in danger of serious physical injury or death from actions of the deceased at the time he fired.
